PostSubject: Bull barrel project   Wed Dec 24, 2014 5:14 pm

So, I am slowly amassing the parts for my first bull barrel project. I got the Archangel stock, Timney trigger, and sent the bolt out to be bent. I ordered the barrel, but sounds like it will be awhile before I see it. I got the Rock Solid scope mount and am waiting to get a laser bore sight to mount it.  interesting
I am hoping to mount the scope mount to the receiver shortly and was wondering if anyone had thoughts on using JB-weld to bed it to the receiver? It seems like it would be an easy way to bed it as it is widely available and hardens up like a rock.

Does anyone have experience with that?  idk
Thanks

I ordered it from McGowenbarrrel.com. They do everything, but the extractor cut. I ordered a stainless steel 26" with a brake on it. Their website says up to 16 weeks, but the lady I talked to said it shouldn't take quite that long.

I used JB Weld to bed my scope mount
I have the ATI Mount and i spread a thin layer of JB under the mount and
tightened the screws lightly until the JB set up

used a laser bore siter to make sure my mount was as straight as I could make it
wile the JB was still wet once set I took out the screws and lock-tited them back in place

still running strong no trouble with it coming loose again

Good to know. I have a laser sight and am waiting for a bore sight to come in. I was thinking of leveling everything and putting the bore sight on a target then putting the laser sight on the mount to help line it all up. I noticed it doesn't sit on the receiver perfectly, so definitely need to bed it.

ya mine rocked a little too the round receiver is not true
so I did the same put a bore laser in the bore and a set the scope on the rings lightly as I tightened
it up a little measure the offset of your scope to the bore and put two dots on paper the same distance
then tape it to the wall as far away as you can put the laser on the lower dot
and line up the scope to the upper one

I had to wedge in some wood and an old ear plug to hold the mount in place wile the JB set up
but once set I had it almost perfectly lined up worked really nice
